There are lots and lots of positives including the setting, the food, the tour guides (Abi, Eli, and Moira), some of the restaurant staff (like Sera Dulce in the main restaurant, and the team at the Camp dining room). We had a wonderful trip, and would recommend going - in particular if Aman addressed the following points: - The Main Room - too much smoke (from poorly designed fireplaces) made it impossible to enjoy evening drinks and dinner. To keep the smoke close to healthy levels, the main doors were left open so the place was incredibly drafty, freezing actually. We kept our coats on, or found shelter in our room. We had dinner most nights in the Camp restaurant where the team did a fantastic job. Great chef, and great team. - Experiences - very very expensive, but also mostly very good. But the experience team at the hotel was invisible - we had to prod them to contact our guides, and there were no reminders or guidance of upcoming events. We were told only 5 minutes before the time that a hot air balloon ride was indeed going ahead. They must have know at least the night before. - The arrival - a complete car crash. We were met by a very nice group of staff, but they had our name wrong, and it took us 15 minutes to set things straight to get us to the right rooms. The staff at reception looked completely lost, tried to consult various lists, and we got there in the end. But it was stressful and an awful first impression. - The rooms - beautiful views of course (and a great bed), but the rooms are tired, and some of the design doesn't really work (like the clunky, ill fitting door to the toilet). - Management: Invisible - Feed-back: I would have much preferred to give this feed-back directly to Amangiri, but to date I have not received any e-mail request or call or similar asking how it all went and where they could improve.

Hotel's Favorite
My family and I stayed at Amangiri for 4 nights to celebrate my mothers birthday. Our entire trip felt like a dream in a luxurious oasis! The service, the staff, the food, the rooms, and the views at Amangiri are truly incredible and indescribable unless you experience it for yourself. We flew into Flagstaff airport and had a driver waiting for us to drive us the 2 hour plus drive to the hotel. Our driver was kind enough to stop at Starbucks for us, as well as at the Grand Canyon so that we could see that on our way to the hotel. Basically any request with Aman is do-able, they never refuse a request! When we checked in our rooms were ready- INCREDIBLE and to die for rooms. Spacious, clean, and with breathtaking views. We had a tour of the hotel and were shown where everything is and given details on activities going on for the days while we are staying. Hotel staff made sure our room was super clean the whole stay, it's like they know you are at dinner or away for the day and that is when they clean the room. Our only comment on the room is we did find a few water bug beetle looking bugs during our stay. Nothing terrible, easily taken care of. Maybe they can spray more bug spray around the rims of the rooms, or seal them better. To be expected when you stay on a main ground level in the desert. Amangiri helped us plan our activities out for our days there- we wanted to get a lot of activities and site seeing in. The cool part is at dinner every night someone came by to tell us what we have going on for the next day just to remind us. Amangiri has its own helicopter landing pad, so we highly recommend taking that tour. As well as doing the via ferratas on property. We are afraid of heights and not all physically fit - but we were all able to do it. Our guide was so much fun and would never let anything happen to us! We also took a guided hike in Buckskin Gulch, our guide Phil was so knowledgeable on everything in the area. It seems like Aman really takes the time to find the right guides for their tours. Everyone we went on a tour with was so kind and so much fun to hang out with for the day. We loved going out on Lake Powell with Oaky! He catered to everything we wanted to see and do. We had Sky for our horse back riding tour and even though she was young- she was a blast! Overall staying at this property was beyond words incredible. The staff makes you feel so well taken care of and can fulfill any of your needs. The architecture and views are unlike anywhere else in the world. Amangiri is one of a kind and surely a one in a lifetime trip. We cannot wait to come back!

I am in awe of how the Aman team made my first trip to Utah that much more special. I had such an amazing time. They truly go above and beyond to make sure you leave wanting to come back! (& I’ll definitely be back) We had to opportunity to go on a via Ferrata and I’ve never felt more liberated! I am so grateful to the staff for helping me to re-energize and get back to my busy life in NYC.

It is hard to capture what makes Amangiri such an incredible hotel. There is excellent food, service and activities, but the effect of the setting and the design of the hotel are what really elevates the experience to something truly unforgettable. Amangiri is located in southern Utah, close to the Arizona border and around Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell and other desert tourism stops. The hotel is situated amid desert mountains and has beautiful views from every vantage point. The architecture of the hotel is stark, but complements the landscape and even disappears into it from a distance. In many parts of the hotel, the scenery is on full display especially from your room and the main dining pavilion. The pool is curved around a giant rock and there are areas of the hotel where the hotel suddenly stops and all you see is desert. The rooms are massive, minimalist and well-designed. The bed is centered in the room so you have incredible views from it. There is a complimentary set of snacks and beverages in the room, plenty of storage and a hat, walking stick and bag you can use while on property. The bathroom is enormous with a double rainfall shower, soaking tub, double sinks, lots of storage and a separate water closet. Camp Sarika is a 20 minute walk away and has its own pool and restaurant that Amangiri guests can take advantage of. The restaurant is smaller, but has daily specials to add variety to what is offered from Amangiri's kitchens. There are also nightly s'mores there and a rotating set of activities at both hotels (e.g. hikes, live music, artistic performances etc.). The spa is tranquil and open to all hotel guests. There is a nice hot tub, steam room, sauna, plunge pool, small boutique and a number of treatment rooms. The massages we had were excellent. The gym is above the spa and had everything you would need, but was probably the weakest in terms of facilities (though it also had an impressive view). The food was fantastic. The kitchen was incredibly flexible in terms of portion size and dietary preferences and the menu is large enough where I don't think you would get tired of it staying a week. They had a Navajo-inspired tasting menu on offer and plenty of entree options while we were there, plus the Camp Sarika restaurant and some all-day dining options by the pool. The wine list is extensive, but quite overpriced. The ambience at dinner is really mesmerizing. You have beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, and multiple roaring fires that are maintained throughout the evening. The service was excellent. Amangiri probably has the best arrival and departure process I have seen. After you check in near the entrance, you drive about a mile down the road around large mountains as the hotel reveals itself. The Assistant GM, bellman and front desk agent were all there to greet us, give us a tour and complete check-in in the room. On departure, they packed up our car, stocked it with water and I discovered later -- placed an Amangiri luggage tag on my suitcase. The housekeeping team also deserves a shoutout -- the nightly turndown gifts were wonderful, and they completed service multiple times a day without us seeing them. On our last night they decorated the room with flower petals and candles and returning to the room to see it is probably something we will never forget. The hotel is a very active one (if you want it to be) -- we went on multiple hikes, but other than that spent most of the time relaxing. The guidance we got from the front desk was excellent in terms of activity options and how to enjoy the property while we were there. Overall, the experience is expensive, but we found it was absolutely worth it. A trip to Amangiri will result in making unforgettable memories, getting lost in the landscapes and feeling centered and relaxed at the end of your trip. It was as close to perfect of a vacation that we have had.

Never did we believe our travels would still be impacted. Thus trying to stay in the United States for holidays, we finally selected Amangiri. The thought of taking holiday in Utah may sound odd at first, this experience will explode all expectations of a resort and luxury. The staff were lovely and all gifts were thoughtfully Covid planned with food cleanly packaged or non-consumable items as alternatives. Pricey but worth it all. Couples trip was perfect
